Pretty easy and required for membership: Do you own a Dachshund or a Dachshund-mix? What is his/her name?

I have three rescued Dachsies. My senior Sammy is about 13 years old, my middle son is Petey, he's about 4 years old and my baby girl, Isabella Durlie Whirl is about 3 years old. All three have amazing stories of their survival and how they came to be rescued and then became the loves of my life! I hope I can share those stories (and other Dachshund rescue stories) with y'all some day soon!

Is he/she current and up-to-date on all vaccines? Is he/she spayed/neutered? (just for group info so no one is surprised at a meetup)

Oh yes... all three are always current on vaccines and all are fixed! Plus, we are diligent about giving monthly heartworm preventative on the 1st of every month without fail! Petey almost didn't survive his heartworms when rescued as a stray. The vet said he only had a 20% chance of survival! But he is completely HW free now! Monthly preventative is such a simple way to keep your dachsies happy and healthy!

Is your dog social with humans and other dogs, or are you currently *working* on his/her social skills?

Bella and Petey are pretty social, but not always at first. Once they see what's going on around them, they want to be right in the middle. Sammy on the other hand is an old fuddy duddy who would rather not be bothered unless there is food involved.

What area of town are you located in? Are there any (small) dog friendly areas, parks, outdoor restaurants in your area that you know of? If yes, please list them below:

I'm out in the NW (290 at Huffmiester) area. There is a park that I've been to down Hwy 6 in the Bear Creek area, but I don't mind driving anywhere and my rescue organization always has something going on in different parts of town! Want to find out more? Check us out on the web at or on Facebook at

Are you interested in helping to schedule/organize Meetup get-togethers with other Dachshund Owners?

I'd love to help if I could. If not, I have resouces within my rescue organization that I can call on to obtain helpful training suggestions.


I'm Cindy & I LOVE DACHSHUNDS! I'm very passionate about Dachshund rescue efforts & very involved as a volunteer for Houston's newest Dachshund Rescue; DREAM Dachshund Rescue, Education & Adoption Mission. Find us at & on Facebook!
